The only good thing about snow is it gives you more stitching time !! I need less snow and more sunshine at this point ! Please throw in some warmer weather to top off my wish list !
Big Congratulations to Mally Becker of NJNA – she just had her historical suspense novel published “The Turncoat’s Widow” It’s the story of General Washington’s most reluctant spy, a fiercely independent young woman who races time and traitors to uncover a plot that threatens the new nation. We all wish Mally good luck with her book and hope it makes the best seller list.
It’s finally here – the ANG auction starts tomorrow. I looked thru the endless list of items and was happy to see so many great choices. Lots of Little Shoppe of Needlepoint pastries, Laurel Burch, Kathy Reese, Gay Ann Rogers – it’s dangerous !! AND for those that are Penguin lovers – some of the most adorable designs by Pepperberry and others !!
If you want to just smile, then look on BeStitched’s web site – they have a monthly club by Patti Mann of — Food Trucks !! There are 9 in total and yes – one is an ice cream truck !!!

I am sure that most of you know about Toni Randall the owner of Whimsy and Grace being forced from her home with the wild fires out west and losing everything. She is getting back on her feet and is having an extended stay trunk show in Chandail Needlework which is in Houston TX. This poor woman can’t catch a break! If you want to help support her you can buy her canvases from them at 20% off.
One of our favorite thread lines, Rainbow Gallery has added 8 new colors to the Fyre Werks line. With names like wild magenta, plum perfect and chocolate kiss I can’t wait to see them in person – bring on the bling!
Our next meeting will be a zoom stitch in – can’t wait to see what everyone is working on!
